Mit fogunk csinálni?

Pick up is from an easy access station in Sabina, 40 minutes from Rome. We take a leisurely drive through beautiful olive groves, visit a 2,000 year old olive tree, and then head to a fantastic local restaurant. Before lunch I will teach you how to taste olive oil, explain what makes good oil and what makes the bad stuff too. During lunch I will show you how these prize-winning oils pair with food in the most surprising way. This is an introduction to an ancient ingredient which, thanks to modern technology, has become a spectacular new ingredient which even the most famous chefs still do not know about. You will leave this day with a wealth of knowledge about production techniques, history, and the freshness, intensity and variety that quality olive oil can offer.
Other things to note
Comfortable shoes should we take a little walk in the olive groves.

In 1982 I came to Italy, tasted freshly-made olive oil, and fell in love with this magical substance. In 1986 I began to grow olives in the Sabine Hills. I was the only non-Italian taster for the Slow Food Olive Oil Guide for 5 years, and now judge oil competitions in Japan, Turkey, Greece, Italy and U.K. I've appeared on BBC tv and radio, and won the Ambassador of Italian Olive Oil award 2017.

The tour was very professional and I learned pt about production techniques. To me the highlights of the tour was the fantastic lunch we had at the villa. The tastings and food and wine made this an experience of a life time. Not to be missed!

Fabulous experience!!! Four of us traveled Italy from Portofino to Sicily experiencing many different activities. By far, Johnny’s Olive Oil tour was our favorite!!! Johnny’s knowledge, wisdom, and heart for not only Italy but the Olive Oil industry is unrivaled. We cannot express enough how wonderful the experience was. In addition to the beautiful and educational tour through the Olive groves and processing plant, we ended with the most scrumptious homemade Italian lunch at the most lovely home of a prominent family in the industry! We strongly encourage everyone who is looking for an interesting and authentic Italian experience to take this trip.

Johnny’s experience was truly the highlight of our vacation and we got exactly what we were looking for - memories which will last a lifetime and something we will share with friends and each other for years to come. Johnny is incredibly friendly, down-to-Earth, and extremely knowledgeable and passionate about olive oil. We learned all about the process of olive oil and he welcomed us into the homes of his friends and showed us the process in greater depth. Even though it was the “off-season” of the olive oil making process, we still came away with a great understanding and learned how to properly taste and distinguish good olive oil. Lunch was absolutely amazing and we ate a wonderful restaurant with traditional Italian food. Kylee especially is a foodie and this was another highlight of our trip. Days later, we’ve been finding every olive oil possible and sniffing and using the techniques taught to us by Johnny - and getting funny looks while doing it too. Thanks Johnny for a truly wonderful experience. Book this tour - we’re sure glad we did!! Jack (Manchester, UK) & Kylee (California, USA)

This was a great way to get out into the Italian countryside and experience Italian food, history and culture; all at a relaxed pace. We thoroughly enjoyed learning all about the various aspects of olive oil and were especially appreciative of Johnny going the extra mile to show us some sites not on the official program.

Taking Johnny’s tour and tasting olive oil with a master is not to be missed! We had such a wonderful time and can easily say that this was the highlight of our trip. Johnny picked us up from the train station and led us through beautiful country roads to observe the olive groves in the area. We even stopped when Johnny heard an olive picking machine in action and walked into the grove to talk with the farmers. He took us to a working olive oil mill and explained the whole process in action. He’s an excellent guide— not only does he have extensive olive knowledge, but he told us about much of the other flora in the area and the various qualities of each herb. Actually tasting oil with Johnny was such a treat! He helped us understand the various smells and tastes we should expect from each oil and suggested various food pairings with our excellent meal. Johnny is warm, generous, and an all-around interesting person who will have you laughing and enjoying yourself immediately. You’ll be doing yourself a tremendous favor to book a day on his olive oil tour!
